1) Soho: Coming September 7th to 451 Broadway between Grand and Howard Sts is CB2, the Chicago-based, lower-priced sibling of Crate and Barrel. We mentioned the store a few months back, but look, a shiny new email has just been sent out about its impending arrival. We can hardly wait as well! [Racked Inbox]
2) Flatiron: Have you caught wind of this whole eco-friendly design movement? Right, ah, that was us just pretending to be obtuse because everyone's talking about environmentally-friendly products. So gird your loins, earth lovers, for Environment Furniture, Inc. The retailer is planning on opening a location at 876 Broadway and 18th Street in July that will feature "an evolving design concept that will reflect its urban surroundings." [Treehugger]
